'Cormac has decided to leave Threadneedle after 17 years and we wish him well and thank him for his valuable contribution to the firm,' Threadneedle investment chief Mark Burgess said.
'Following his departure, we will continue to invest in our London team under Diane’s leadership, while also better and more fully utilising the research resources of Columbia Management.'
The Threadneedle US equity team will be boosted by the arrival of Nadia Grant, who joins from JP Morgan Asset Management and will assume control of the Threadneedle American fund.
Kochar, who has nine years' experience, joined Threadneedle in 2008, while Robson joined the firm three years later and is armed with 25 years' experience.
Threadneedle chief executive Campbell Fleming said: 'I am grateful for Cormac’s contribution to Threadneedle’s success and wish him well. Looking ahead, there is an exciting opportunity to increase collaboration with our Columbia colleagues and offer our clients a significantly enhanced US equities capability and we look forward to continuing to focus on delivering strong results for clients.
'The extensive additional resources and expertise available to our US equities team will provide added depth to our overall offering, and given Diane’s experience and expertise I am confident we will fully leverage this for the benefit of our clients.'
